When: September 23rd – 24th, 2022, check in starts at 4:00 PM Friday. Scouts should plan for their own dinner Friday evening or eat before they arrive.

Why: The purpose of this training is to teach Scouts that are holding or plan to hold a leadership position in their unit about their new roles and how to reach success in that role. ILST is intended to help Youth Leaders in unit leadership positions understand their responsibilities and to equip them with organizational and leadership skills to fulfill those responsibilities. Completion of this training is a prerequisite for Scouts BSA and Venturing Scouts to participate in the more advanced leadership course, such as National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) and the National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE) offered at Philmont and the Summit. Upon completion of this training, Youth Leaders are qualified to wear the “Trained” emblem of their uniforms. We will provide the “Trained” emblem the end of the training on Sunday.

Absolute Deadline for registering (on line or at the Council Service Center is September 16th, 2022 (by 5pm).  No refunds after final registration on September 20th, 2022...No Exceptions!
